Property Description 

Johnsons Wood Farm is found in a truly rural location with no near neighbours and an idyllic outlook over farmland. However the charming village of Cheswardine, which offers a range of facilities including pubs, post office and community shop, and thriving primary school, is only 1.5 miles distant.

A greater variety of amenities including both boutique style shops and supermarkets can be found in the local market towns of Market Drayton and Newport as well as the larger conurbations of Stafford, Shrewsbury and Telford. The area is extremely well served educationally with both private and state primary and secondary schools with renowned boys’ and girls’ selective, state-managed, schools at Newport.     

With excellent road links via the A53 and A41 to the M54 and M6 motorways, and a mainline railway station within easy reach, this country hideaway is ideal for those needing to commute for work.

Johnsons Wood Farm enjoys an unspoilt and isolated position accessed along a half-mile long private drive. The sweeping drive cuts through farmland and down to the house giving an impressive overview of the property as a whole and the far-reaching views.

The stunning Grade II listed part sandstone house, which is believed to date back to the 1600’s, is host to a plethora of stunning period features including exposed timbers, leaded windows and wood panelling.

Further to this is a dining room with an attractive brick fireplace and log-burning stove and the impressive panelled sitting room, which runs the full width of the house, also house a log-burning stove. In addition there is a cellar.

To the first floor there are four well-proportioned bedrooms, one if which has an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. 

The extensive gardens surround the house on all sides. Predominantly laid to lawn, they are largely surrounded by mature hedgerows offering a private space to relax. To the rear of the house is a patio area which is perfectly situated to enjoy the views and tranquil location.

Across the yard is a two-storey sandstone barn which has been converted to provide a one-bedroom cottage with well-equipped open-plan kitchen/sitting room and a conservatory. This charming cottage offers ideal living space for extended family or staff accommodation. Equally it could be rented out and until recently this was the case with it bringing in £500 pcm. Beyond the cottage are a further range of timber-clad outbuildings. Historically used for the housing of cattle, these have been updated to provide workshop and storage space but would be equally well suited as stabling or alternatively could be converted to create office or workspace for those who work from home.

A paddock is found to the side of the drive which would be ideal for grazing of a pony or other stock and parts of the extensive gardens could be put back to grass and fenced as paddock space. The property extends to 1.4 Acres as a whole.


Please note that a public footpath runs along the side of the garden and behind the buildings.
